He may be missing the Champions League final through suspension but if Chelsea win, captain John Terry will still be allowed to lift the trophy.
Terry is banned after being sent off for violent conduct in the semi-final second leg against Barcelona.
Uefa’s rules only prevent suspended players from sitting on the bench.
The governing body also said it will not change its rules to let six other suspended players feature.

It means Terry will have to watch the final from the stands, along with Raul Meireles, Ramires and Branislav Ivanovic, all of whom are banned after being booked against Barcelona.
Bayern’s Luiz Gustavo, David Alaba and Holger Badstuber will also miss out after being shown yellow cards in Wednesday’s win over Real Madrid.

Uefa said the regulations in place when the competition started must stand for the game in Munich, with any future changes required to go through a lengthy committee process before being ratified.
